's relationship it the united states. ambassador john bolton, former u.n. ambassador to the u.n. and fox news contributor joins us now. ambassador, why is this significant? >> i think it shows the influence iran has over the maliki government in iraq and is using iraqi airspace, if these reports are correct, to resupply syria. this is a critical fight in syria for iran. it goes to its arc of hegemony across the region, hezbollah, terrorist group in lebanon, to me it is not surprising that iraq is allowing these flights. not surprising iran would try to use the overflights is supply syria. jenna: why should iraq listen to us? >> i think it is very unlikely iraq will listen to us. i think the administration's decision to pull out combat troops simply allowed iran to increase its influence over the maliki government. that is one of the reasons i'm worried about stability in iraq itself. it was one of the consequences entirely predictable when this withdrawal went forward. jenna: but iran has been involved in iraq and iraqi politics now for a while, ambassador, right? we've seen this before. iran

these united states. >> this is a friday jobs report there is bad news for governor mitt romney. both big tracking polls published just this morning show the president gaining. gallup has obama up 45 to 49%. rasmussen has the polls up. about a bounce or paying attention. in. >> clearly a bounce going on for the president. it began the night after clinton gave his speech. clinton viewed positive by 66% of americans. he has helped the president in reshaping this. and right now we don't know how high the bounce will go or how long it will last but we do know is that democrats for the first time in this election cycle are just as excited about the election as republicans. >> geraldo: so how popular is bill clinton and isn't it inevitable that some of his mojo will rub off on one of his successors? >> well, he is very popular. and again, especially with those unaffiliated voters. the question of how much of it can rub off is an interesting one. 8 out of 10 democrats say bill clinton and barack obama share the same ideas about how to fix the economy. only 22% of republicans agree and they are n
. >> absolutely. notwithstanding what any poll may say, the president of the united states is making this address thursday night we feel very confident that the stadium will be full. and so it's really more about the weather than it is about whether you're going to fill a stadium or not. he is the president, making one of the most important speeches given where we are right now at this time. no doubt that the stadium will be full. certainly you don't want people rained on. >> can i ask about the enthusiasm number. you're my numbers guy. so you're prepared for the whole morning. i'll throw it your way. >> what does that really mean? if you look at the enthusiasm numbers the number foreenthusiasm for mitt romney i think is 51% when they asked republicans and when i do anecdotal questioning, everybody seems to be like -- on this election overall. is it a measure of incumbent that people are less enthusiastic or overall? >> i think it's right that it is a measure of overall. this is not a history-making election in the way that 2008 was history-making election. you knew that there was going to be a n
tax rate. the united states have highest corporate tax rate in the industrialized world making us less competitive. we need to bring down the corporate tax rate to attract investors and different corporations as well. we have to simplify the corporate tax code. a lot of extra provisions that can be reduced to simplify and make corporate taxes and individual taxes easier. reducing the rate and simplifying the deductions is the key winning formula. dennis: as soon as we hear reduce the rate that will make some americans feel they are favoring corporations. do you guys want overall corporate tax revenue to go up to help balance the budget? >> corporations have a role to play in the economy and they should play commensurate with their earnings like everybody should pay in terms of how we are structured. in terms of lowering the corporate tax rate increases jobs and that helps americans. by lowering the corporate tax rate you help the economy and individual americans and that is the key to getting the economy started again. dennis: overall should there be an alternative minimum tax so every

, the president of the united states happened to be a person who is deeply rooted in god and it is a major important part of him and a reason why i personally came to this president because he expressed that. for the last four years there has been a huge attempt to talk about his faith. this party reflects all viewpoints that is good. we know this is a budget who is drive were by his faith and respects all viewpoints. >>shepard: would it have been, it looks what you are doing is acknowledging the fact that in your, yours is the big tenth party, eightist, arab americans, all different kinds of faith and lack of faith and you acknowledge that by leaving that out. why not just own it. clearly that was happening. >>guest: this is probably the one place in our discussion --. >>shepard: we will not discuss it. >>guest: the reality is, i have had massive number of discussions and we are talking about the economy that the president is running on his record. that is something we spent most of time talking about, the facts we want to move forward on all sorts of different issues in this country. whe
. >> madam chairwoman, delegates, i accept your nomination for president of the united states. >> reporter: facing the political fight of his life, the 44th president of the united states made the case for his re-election, asking americans to stick with him for another four years despite tough economic times. >> our problems can be solved, our challenges can be met. the path we offer may be harder but it leads to a better place, and i'm asking you to choose that future. >> reporter: four years later the president felt he had to appeal to voters exhausted by the tone of american politics. >> i know campaigns may seem small, even sill sly sometimes. trivial things become big attractions. if you're sick of me approving this message, believe me, so am i. >> reporter: but obama pulled no punches when it came to his republican rival. his references to opponent turned him into a punch line. >> my opponent is new to foreign policy. you may not be ready if you can't visit the olympics without insulting our closest ally. if you can't afford to start a business or go to college, take my opponent's ad
rate in the united states and you have people leaving the labor force adding jobs is just -- it doesn't koupt. a month like this adding jobs doesn't really matter because you're still falling short of where you need. economists call it a growth recession, where you're technically growing but you're losing ground while you do. the president can keep talking about this and blaming the house republicans but as we heard last night he doesn't have a new mess edge didn't really bring out anything new to offer the american people in this closing argument except for stay with me, stay the course, stick with me a little longer. that is a tough sell on a day like this. shannon: safe travels home from shar lot. >> reporter: thanks, shannon. shannon: since the start of the fiscal year of 2011 through the latest statistics through june of this year, authors the latest available numbers. 2.9million jobs have been added to the economy, but over that same period 3.5 million people have also been added to the food stamp rolls. vice president biden said last night that america's economy is basically ba

that is the fact that during this week while the democratic national convention is taking place, the united states' total debt will eclipse $16 trillion. that speaks louder than any kind of reminiscing to when bill clinton was president. he's a net plus for the democrats. >> will cain and lz granderson, i don't think we'll see any fighting when we're done with this segment. >> if i could point out one thing,w didn't lose, he won re-election, they still didn't invite him back. >> that's a valid point, but like i said we certainly have seen that over past decades when parties don't want to be reminded of the most recent past. my guess is four years from now, eight years in now you may see george w. bush at the gop convention. we'll wait and see. >> thank you. >>> still not a good idea to go home. that mandatory evacuation in louisiana has been lifted, but it's still very touch and go. we'll have an update from the storm zone. >>> you can stay connected. you can watch cnn live on your computer. you can do it from work. just go to cnn.com/tv. are you okay, babe? i'm fine. ♪ ♪ ♪ with a subaru you
